Round Turn & 2 Half Hitches

Round Turn & 2 Half Hitches

This simple knot will help you attach a rope to a stationary object, e.g. to moor a boat to a pier. It doesn’t jam and is easy to untie. The knot is extensively used in boating, although it is not fail-safe. For additional security pull the knot tight or seize the ends with a twine.

Duncan Knot

Duncan Knot

(Duncan Loop, Uni Knot, Grinner Knot) One of the most important snelling knots, used mainly for attaching hooks, swivels, lures or flies to a line. It can also be used for joining two lines. The knot is very strong and dependable and not complicated in structure: after some practice it can be tied effortlessly in the dark. The knot was named after its inventor, Norman Duncan, but then for its vast scope of application it got another name — «uni knot». Among the multiple virtues of the Duncan knot is that it can be tied at some distance from an object and then it slides into the right place. The knot is not recommended for braided lines; it is more secure on monofilaments. ABoK #1121

Let’s begin a 3D drawing! If you don't have any previous experience with this kind of picture, we suggest you start with the simplest drawings, for example, a circle. When learning to draw in 3D, it’s best to use simple pencils with different grades of lead. If you can, acquire a special kit. Soft lead pencils make a darker and thicker line; hard lead pencils a thinner and lighter line. In addition, when drawing in 3D you must sometimes bear down harder and sometimes more lightly.
